HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

Millbank Pit appears on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey Map but is not shown on the 2nd edition, so had presumably ceased operations by 1894/5. Opened on 23 February 1775 by Messrs Bell & Co.

'Sketches of The Coal Mines in Northumberland and Durham' T.H.Hair, published in 1844
